After you shoot your longbeard, it's a good idea to go to the
turkey as quickly as possible. Because a gobbler's vital zone
(in the head and neck) is so thin, what appears to be a solid
hit might only stun the bird long enough to give you false
hope. Just because the bird is chewing dirt and flopping does
NOT mean that he's finished. The only way to be sure is to
run to the downed turkey and put a boot over his neck, but
avoid grabbing his legs too quickly (His spurs can inflict
serious injury). If you're hunting with a partner and the two
of you are going for a "double," however, be careful not to
run into your buddy's line of fire -- if he or she should
require a follow-up shot. A minute's hesitation would be muchsafer!

Here's a vest you simply should not deprive yourself of
for one minute longer. It's the Extreme Turkey Lounger
($69.99), which features the same patented built-in padded
seat with internal framed support that made the original
such a winner. This seat is as easy to use as it iscomfortable.
